Prime minister visits family centre scheme in Dorset

First published in News

The Prime Minister and Chancellor visited the Royal Marines base in Poole today as they announced an extra £100m funding to support military families and good causes.

David Cameron visited the site in Hamworthy where a new £2.3m family centre is under construction. He was accompanied by local MP Robert Syms.

Flanked by George Osborne he met with serving marines and some of the wives and children living on and around the base.

He asked about the children’s schools and spoke at some length about the need for improvements to military housing.

The family centre, which should be completed by early next summer, has been funded by the LIBOR fund – money made available to military charities and projects as a result of fines levied on the banks.

Mr Cameron told the families: “This is a great project. This is exactly what we want to use this money for.”
